Going bunless

I know there were times when my mom ran out of buns or didn't have the extra to buy them and we made do with plain white bread as this boy seems to be doing. I actually would rather eat them "naked" than use bread, but then I was a brat.

Norwegian Food

My research shows that the Schulstad ancestors came from Norway. Perhaps the boy preferred Frankfurter sausages, which are eaten without rolls. Btw, hot dogs are a forerunner of Frankfurters, introduced by a German immigrant mid 19th century. I myself prefer Viennese sausages. Actually everything is identical, only the name is a matter of taste. Greetings from Germany.

All gone

From the left:

William Harry Schulstad (1924-1995)
Mary Elizabeth O'Hara Schulstad (1895-1979)
Mark Leslie Schulstad (1927-2009)
Joan Lenore Schulstad Carey (1930-2000)

Father was Lewis Melvin "Bud" Schulstad (1883-1970).

Good genes

The Schulstads had beautiful children. Little missy needs to eat her crusts though.

1. The boy has two hot dogs but no hot dog rolls.
2. There's no sink where the sink should be.
